Powder is Added to the Menu for This Year’s Turkey Day

Why does it take approaching the holiday season for us to ponder all that we’re grateful for? Living in Teton Valley in itself is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are. I was particularly reminded of this on a recent trip to California. When people I met along the way asked where I was from, almost everyone I encountered knew or has heard of the Yellowstone-Teton area. Some even seemed to be in awe that I actually lived here. It only served to remind me, once again, how lucky we are to wake each morning to the true splendor that surrounds us. As the holiday season approaches, we all need to give thanks for our family, friends, health and peace on this planet we all share. We also can’t help but to give a nod to the snow gods that year after year blanket this landscape with nature’s finest, in this wondrous place we call home.

 

Grand Targhee Resort – The Summit of Fred’s Mountain

You know you’re in the right place when your neighborhood ski area is Grand Targhee Resort! Perhaps not as well known as the Tetons themselves, Targhee has survived the test of time in grand style. This Wyoming gem celebrates its 45th birthday this ski season. That’s almost a half century of providing what many consider to be the best turns in the Northern Rockies, and most assuredly, the most spectacular scenery.

When you reach the summit of Fred’s Mountain with the Tetons in full view, you’ll be compelled to ask yourself, why go anywhere else. While quaint and unassuming, with a rather small base area by current mega resort standards (that’s a good thing!), the snow is undoubtedly and consistently the best in the west. And, on most days you’ll have lots of acreage to call your own. Graced with wide-open slopes and plenty of powder stashes long after the last storm has passed, Grand Targhee is a secret we reluctantly share.

 

Thanksgiving and Fall/Winter Get-Away Packages

Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, a place many call the heart of Teton Valley, show their appreciation for guests every November with their Thanksgiving Escape Package. You only have to pay for two nights and the third night is on them. Just another way this special place demonstrates the spirit of giving back to their guests. This generous offering is available in the hotel’s lodge rooms and suites and 3, 4 and 5 bedroom luxury mountain log homes that grace the perimeter of this 780 acre resort. Grand Targhee is slated to open their door to the adoring public on November 22.

 

Relax After a Day of Fun and Excitement at Stillwaters Spa & Salon

The Stillwaters Spa & Salon therapists are standing at alert to help manage those early ski season muscle aches and pains, and, you’ll only pay for a 60 minute massage and they stop at 90. November 30 spells the end of this special, so again, some urgency is called for. There’s also a Yoga/massage combo special going on now thru December 25 that’s worth checking out, bring your friends!

 

Eat Like a King, Fantasy Football, Clams, Lasagna, Yummy!

If cooking up a traditional turkey dinner is a priority, I wouldn’t delay in booking a Teton Springs Lodge suite or cabin. And they make it easy; these accommodations have all the kitchen tools you will need. Just bring the bird! The Headwaters Grille at Teton Springs offers a scrumptious Thanksgiving turkey for those who would prefer slope time to KP duty. Guests can also indulge in their Fantasy Football obsession at the Grille every Sunday, together with food & beverage specials.

They’re constantly mixing it up at the Headwaters Grille, (operating during the winter season on Thursday thru Saturdays) and Chef Jordan has just announced a roll out of new Italian dinners including Clam Fettuccini, Stacked Lasagna, Spaghetti and Grand Meatballs. Of course, special Italian wines have been added to the menu to complete this culinary experience.

 

Winter Activities in the Teton Valley

Another noteworthy event to put on calendars is the Holiday art Show at Teton Springs slated for Saturday, December 7th. It’s a fun-filled day where local artisans showcase their latest art & Jewry, kids create their own Christmas tree ornaments and Old Saint Nick makes an appearance to hear the latest wishes from kids of all ages. The Stillwaters Spa gets into the game with free paraffin hand wax treatments and a chance to win a luxurious Spa Gift Basket. Both naughty and nice can enter to win. It’s all part of the City of Victor’s annual Festival and Light Parade and should be on everyone’s calendar. Happy Holidays from your friends at Teton Springs!

Yellowstone – Teton Territory Shines Bright

YELLOWSTONE-TETON TERRITORY SHINES BRIGHT THIS TIME OF YEAR!

We tend to grumble this time of year if spring showers interrupt our plans for all things outdoors; a round of golf on the Headwaters Course, a casual hike up Pole Canyon, or a mountain bike trek into the adjacent Caribou-Targhee National Forest. However, any frustration at being forced indoors, even for a few hours, melts away when the sun returns in all its glory and the entire Teton Valley landscape is a sea of emerald green, wild daisies and lilacs. Then for overkill, throw in the snow capped Teton Mountains as the luscious backdrop for all this color. I know, I say this about every season but seriously, can it get much prettier than it is right now?!

Food an Incredible Time at Teton Springs

Guests at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa who have decided to beat the summer rush to the Tetons know what I’m talking about. You hear them gush about their adventures as they sit in the lobby sipping an afternoon cup of tea or relaxing in the cozy Sage Café tasting one of Idaho’s best home grown wines. So here’s the inside scoop from both a visitors perspective and my own. Let’s start with the fishing. Fly fishing in this region accounts for why so many make the journey to Teton Springs in late May and June. It’s called the salmon fly hatch and you hear resident fishermen from one end of the valley to the other talk of this “event” in hushed tones. If you’re lucky. Most often this local knowledge on where the fish are gulping the big bugs isn’t shared, sometimes not even with the closest family members.

The Salmon Fly Hatch on the Henry’s Fork

My husband and I recently caught the salmon fly extravaganza on the Henry’s Fork and patience pays huge dividends. As with everything in life, it’s all about the timing. Salmon flies were literally everywhere and we assumed luring the big trout to the surface with this particular bug would be like talking candy from a baby. Not so fast. On some stretches the rainbows had their fill, obviously having just gorged themselves just hours, or perhaps minutes, before our arrival. However, you make the turn around the next river’s bend and that familiar gulping sound was back, like music to our ears. Fishing with these giant bugs is the most fun you will ever have. If you missed the early salmon fly hatch this year, plan for it well in advance for 2014. You can rest assured that Teton Springs Lodge & Spa does; they create their own lodge & salmon fly fishing package with their partner WorldCast Outfitters just for the occasion.

Featured next on the menu, the golden stone hatch. One can count on seeing these babies fly with abandon on the Henry’s Fork for the next few weeks, and while not quite as meaty as the salmon fly, the golden stone is another reason to get on the river early. They can easily be spotted on the water and fish take it hard. Just another reason to visit this Yellowstone region sooner than later.

Yellowstone Park – Bring the Entire Family to Teton Springs

Speaking of Yellowstone, it also wouldn’t be prudent to visit Teton Springs anytime during the summer season without a side trip to both of our country’s most spectacular national parks. On the resort’s “Park Pass Package” admission to Grand Teton and Yellowstone is free, for an entire 7 days. Not to mention the other goodies included on this package. Families in particular should take a serious look at renting one of the 3, 4 or 5 bedroom mountain log homes bordering the Headwaters Golf Course at Teton Springs.

In these digs you’re treated to the lap of luxury at affordable rates. After a day of cruising the parks, a dip in the Teton Springs heated pool or soak in the hot tub is just what the doctor ordered. We have quite a few nice summer vacation and getaway packages available, we look forward to seeing you!

Great Music, Food and Fun at the Headwater’s Club

“Mulligan Mondays” is a terrific way to start a new week and are in full swing at the Headwaters Club. The quality of music is worth planning a stay around this weekly event. Some of the region’s best musicians/bands serenade guests from 5-7p.m. now thru the end of September every Monday. The view alone from the Headwaters patio is worth the price of admission, which by the way is free. After an inspiring performance by local favorites Miller Sisters or the Alta Boys, slip into the Headwaters Grille for one of Chef Jordan’s home cooked meals. Who ever thought Monday’s could be so perfect?!

Call 877.787.8757 to schedule your summer adventure and fly fishing packages at Teton Springs Lodge, one of the Rockies best fly fishing lodges. And did I mention the salmon flies are headed to the South Fork. But you didn’t hear it from me.
